Kelly McCallum

I was totally going to make a ring just like this, but my local Michael's was fresh out of human bones! Kelly McCallum, a recent graduate of London's Royal College of Art, combines tiny live plants and pieces of human femur in her "Dust to Dust" collection. As she puts it, "[the plants] grow out of roughly cut rings, which are vaguely reminiscent of rock, but possess warmth from their colour and texture that rock cannot achieve. These are simple, poetic pieces about the cyclical nature of life and death."
